Team News: Nuri Sahin fit to start for Borussia Dortmund

Nuri Sahin will start alongside Sebastian Kehl in midfielder for Borussia Dortmund as they travel to Marseille in the final game of the Champions League group stages.

Borussia Dortmund midfielder Nuri Sahin has passed a late fitness test to start against Marseille in tonight's final group-stage match in the Champions League.

The Turkish international's inclusion alongside Sebastian Kehl allows Henrikh Mkhitaryan to take up an advanced role in support of Robert Lewandowski.

Meanwhile, teenage defender Marian Sarr will partner Sokratis Papastathopoulos at centre-back, while Erik Durm gets in ahead of Lukas Piszczek at left-back.

Saber Khalifa, Andre-Pierre Gignac and Dimitri Payet all start for the hosts, while Benjamin Mendy is chosen ahead of Jeremy Morel.

The German side need three points to guarantee qualification to the knockout stages. while Les Phoceens - now under the temporary guidance of Jose Anigo - are yet to win a point in Europe this term.

Marseille: Mandanda, Mendes, Diawara, Mendy, Fanni, Cheyrou, Lemina, Payet, Gignac, Thauvin, Khalifa
Subs: Samba, Abdallah, Morel, Aloe, Imbula, Jordan Ayew, Bangoura

Dortmund: Weidenfeller, Sarr, Papastathopoulos, Durm, Kehl, Reus, Blaszczykowski, Sahin, Grosskreutz, Mkhitaryan, Lewandowski
Subs: Langerak, Kirch, Piszczek, Gunter, Hofmann, Aubameyang, Schieber

Sunday's key events


GOLF
· The men's golf reaches its conclusion, with plenty of players still in medal contention. Home favourite Hideki Matsuyama is one shot off Xander Schauffele's lead, while Great Britain's Paul Casey is another shot further back and Tommy Fleetwood is also in the mix (11.30pm-8am)

CYCLING - BMX
· Great Britain have already made history in the BMX events in Tokyo, something Charlotte Worthington and Declan Brooks will be looking to add to in the women's (2.10am) and men's (3.10am) freestyle finals

SWIMMING
· The final day of swimming action begins with the men's 50m freestyle final. Ben Proud could add to a medal-laden Games in the pool for Team GB so far, although he is up against USA's Caeleb Dressel, who is going for his fourth gold in Tokyo (2.30am)
· From sprint to endurance, Great Britain's second medal hope of the day comes through Daniel Jervis in the men's 1500m freestyle final (2.44am)
· Team GB will again be among the heavy favourites for gold in the last swimming event of the Games - the men's 4x100m medley relay final - having won the mixed event in a world record time on Saturday (3.36am)

BOXING
· Already guaranteed at least a bronze, Pat McCormack takes part in the men's welterweight semi-final against Ireland's Aidan Walsh with a spot in the gold medal final at stake (4.03am)
· Ben Whittaker is also in the semi-finals of the men's light heavyweight and will be looking to continue Team GB's success in the ring (4.51am)

TENNIS
· There will be a surprise on the top of the men's tennis podium after Novak Djokovic missed out on a medal altogether. Alexander Zverev takes on Karen Khachanov in the second match on Centre Court at the Ariake Tennis Park (7am-2pm)

SAILING
· Alison Young will be going for gold in the women's laser radial medal race (7.33am)

ARTISTIC GYMNASTICS
· Team GB's Max Whitlock will look to defend his 2016 Olympic title in the men's pommel horse final (10.41am)

ATHLETICS
· The men's high jump final includes GB's Tom Gale, although his chances of a medal look bleak (11.10am)
· So often the blue-riband event of the Olympics, the men's 100m final takes place as the world's fastest bid to be crowned Usain Bolt's successor. Three Brits have made it into the semi-finals (11.15am-11.32am), and the final looks wide open after an underwhelming display by favourite Trayvon Bromell on Saturday (1.50pm)

HOCKEY
· Great Britain face India in the men's quarter-final (1pm)
